"Selwyn Gamble/P.O. Box 950/ Senatobia, MS. 38668". "The father of the
gourmet chocolate chip cookie" is pictured here in his trademark Hawaiian shirt
and Panama hat. After leaving the William Morris Talent Agency to move to
Hollywood and represent his own clients, Wally Amos began leaving his
homemade chocolate chip cookies as calling cards and thank you gifts. Demand
for his cookies was so great, that Hollywood stars and Motown artists loaned
him money to start the Famous Amos Cookie Company on Sunset Boulevard in 1975.
By 1985, revenues from sales of his cookies reached more than $10 million
annually, but in 1989 reversals in finances resulted in Amos relinquishing
ownership and the rights to his name. In 1999, after the Keebler Cookie
Company bought Famous Amos, he signed on as the firm's Director of Cookie Fun,
once again promoting the cookies that bear his name. Two items. Creased.
Otherwise, fine condition.
